    benchtop metal shear table

    As found elsewhere on the web, I got tired of trying to hold metals when shearing. I simply bolted angle iron onto the shear and then attached a flat to the angle. This made for a nice table on the raw side of the shear. Additionally, I attached a scale at a right angle to the blade to easily reference the amount the raw steel was being moved into the shear blades. I can now shear identical strips very quickly and easily with minimal effort to hold the bulk in place.
